to senators on both democrat and republican sides of the aisle, senator rob portman and sherrod brown about this ad. take a listen. >> i say it is the most disingenuous ad i've ever seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they know that ohio reasons connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue and they know that governor romney and my opponent's opposition to the auto rescue, they're trying to crowd the issue and it is pretty outrageous. >> it is their game to the extent it is reported in the media and that's all they have said, there is reports this could happen. the bigger issue for me is what i talked about today who has the best policies to be sure we can continue to manufacture here in america. >> so we should also say that the gm actually weighed in very unusually on this romney ad with a spokesman calling it the worst kind of cynical campaign politics. there is some pushback from the industry about this very controversial ad. >> and, john, big picture here, the latest poll showing us the president has a little bit, a slight edge in ohio right now. but how muc
starting shortly after midnight to try to evacuate some people from their apartments, from their brown stones here, people who just thought they couldn't really stay in their homes too much longer. not life threatening situations necessarily, but at least some discomfort there and people just not wanting to be in the homes with the water like this. now, we have to say now that the water is receding. it is receding pretty drastically over the last hour. there is a stretch of dry street there behind me. that was not there an hour ago. a lot of cars completely -- not completely but submerged up to the tire range there. now some of the water receding. a lot of that is due to the efforts of gentlemen like this. this is a volunteer from the neighborhood here. he and a couple of other guys have come out here on the corners here, clearing out storm drains. and i think that's responsible for a lot of the water reseating. city workers doing what they can to siphon this out. this is a surge from the hudson river that came up from the storm drain, when the storm came, the water came into the drain
? we also spoke to ohio senators, rob portman and sherrod brown about the ad. and here's what they said, carol. >> i say it's the most disingenuous ad i've seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they understand that 800,000 ohioans are connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue. they know that governor romney and my opponent's proposition to the auto rescue -- they're trying to cloud the issue. and it's pretty outrageous. >> it's fair game to the extent it's reported in the media, and that's all he said, there have been reports this could happen. the bigger issue for me, who has the best policies to be sure we can continue to manufacture here in america. >> reporter: so both campaigns -- surrogates fighting over this ad. but the squabbling itself is a distraction. and, again, voters here saying they're not sure why the romney campaign decided to double down on this. auto industry so important to voters here in ohio and michigan. and this ad seems to have caused a distraction more than an asset. >> well, and the auto manufacturers, they're not very happy with
to decision make. >> michael bloomberg is supporting scott brown in that race for exactly the same reason because he said he supports independent thinkers. >> i think they do have two good candidates. but i know elizabeth well and i think she will be independent. i think if you look at her sources of campaign support, she's got a huge base of small donors. she really is smart and she'll be a player from day one if she gets elected. looks like she will. >> out on the edge supporting a democrat. >> for the first time -- >> yes, yes, yes. let's get to some other stories making news. >> all right, soledad. hard numbers in the aftermath of superstorm sandy are just so great. 92 americans dead, 3.5 million power customers still in the dark. estimated losses up to $50 billion. a lot of residents if hard-hit staten island, new york, they're just very angry that the new york city marathon will still be held on sunday. the race actually starts on staten island, and they say resources should not be diverted from the recovery efforts there. meanwhile homeland security secretary janet napolitano will

. >> oh, my gosh. listen, let's get down to business, brown noser, nevada is feeling a bit more optimistic, but the unemployment rate is still so high there. are there really signs of broader growth? >> reporter: there are. it is stunning that the president has held on to a lead, a slim lead in this state as he has because the unemployment is so bad. 12.3% in clark county, 11.8% in nevada. the worst in the nation. not only here at the stratosphere but there are buildings across town that have been stopped, the construction stopped for more than a year now. they're starting to start up again. the one big statistic i heard, which is a tiny statistic, the housing prices here. since 2007, they have gone down. in the last month, they went up by 1%. and that, for people in the housing market here, is huge. don? >> miguel, in all seriousness, great report. it makes a viewer watch. really good. thank you. i appreciate you joining us. miguel marquez. >>> cnn gets an underground look at the nation's busiest transportation system. have you ever been underground the new york city subway system. it is
. look at the flooding. you see the exact line where it was at its highest point. you can see that brown smudge line up there. and the consistency of the water is really bad. it's putrid. you can smell the fuel mixing in with sewage, debris, you've got the fuel. the only thing i can really equate that water to, people are actually walking through it believe it or not, to get to their places, it's just like that star wars scene, the trash compactor water where the monster comes up and looks around, that's exactly what it looks like. it's unreal. even getting here this morning was a pain in the neck. the national guard came in, which was great, but they had all kind of road closures still due to water. there's no power in the city. we're trying to weave in and out of the cities to get here safely. there are live wires down. even getting here from newark, usually you can see manhattan it's lit up beautiful, newark beautifully. newark is black. no lights on. southern tip of manhattan totally black as well and no cars on the road. it was absolutely really terrifying coming in here this mornin
